Transparency in Flash Video

Take a look at this site: www.ispeakvideo.com  Notice that everything in the video is transparent except for the woman speaking, and notice that you can see the html content on the page behind the video clip. Hence the question: How can an area of the swf file be made transparent so as to view objects, html and otherwise, that sit below it on the same web page?

I'm using Flash 8. Thanks.
